Elam and The Elamites: The Evidence No Believer Can Afford To Ignore

Elam and The Elamites: The Evidence No Believer Can Afford To Ignore

The Shemites
Elam: Son of Shem One of the most interesting mysteries in the Bible surrounds the sons of Noah and the origin of each nation on the planet. According to most mainstream Christian researchers the sons of Noah divided into the nations as follows: Ham: Black Africans + Black Arabs Shem: "Olive" Hebrews + "Olive" Arabs Japheth: Europeans + Asians However, discoveries of Biblical sites are starting to paint an entirely different picture than the one presented to the general public by the church and media. According to the Bible, Elam was one of the sons of Shem: "The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram." - Genesis 10:22 It is in this verse we are first introduced to Elam, the father of the Elamites. When we start digging into t...

Let's see if the third time really is the charm. The first time I attempted this Minister Fortson.com was too new and had too few visitors. The second time I didn't have time to build it like I wanted to. This time around I have the time and with traffic near 100k network wide this month, it feels like time to try it again.

Ruddy Skin Color In Scripture: It Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means

Ruddy Skin Color In Scripture: It Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means

Hidden History
Ruddy Complexion In The Bible If you've ever wondered what the Bible means when it referred to Esau, David, and other Hebrews as ruddy, then you've come to the right place. This is a very in depth study on the word, because this page will be used as a resource page for other studies. For that reason, it is very important to have a full understanding of the word, and the context in which it is used in scripture. All I ask is that you look at the evidence presented and based solely on that, make up your mind as to what color ruddy is referring to in scripture. British-Israelism and Ruddy Complexion The current teaching in mainstream Christianity is that ruddy complexion can only refer to white people with the ability to blush, but that is inconsistent with it's scientific ...
Ham: The Origin of Black Africans and Black Arabs In The Bible

Ham: The Origin of Black Africans and Black Arabs In The Bible

The Hamites
Ham: Son of Noah Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham (Cham), and Japheth, but it is Ham and his lineage that settled Africa and various parts of Arabia. Although that is the case, there is lots of evidence that Ham was not the only black son, but may have had black skin in common with Shem. According to scripture, the brothers were born when Noah was 500 years old. "And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth." - Genesis 5:32 According to the Strong's Concordance #2526 (Cham) is defined as: a son of Noah, also his descendants, also a name for Egyptians. This definition plays a role in the very way we look at scripture because: Mainstream Christianity teaches that Ham's children were black. The Bible teaches that Hebrews were mistak...
Interracial Marriage In The Bible: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know… and Then Some

Interracial Marriage In The Bible: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know… and Then Some

The Awakening
Interracial Marriage In The Old Testament The topic of interracial marriage in relation to the Bible often makes many people uncomfortable. The reason for this is that most of the teaching on it comes from cherry picking specific situations and attempting to apply them across the board. This study is an in depth look at what was allowed and what wasn't allowed when it came to interracial marriage in the Bible. Click here for the complete list of interracial marriages in the Bible. Before we start, we need to understand that mainstream Christianity teaches and accepts the following view on the origins of the races: Shem: Hebrews and Arabs Ham: Africans Japheth: Europeans and Asians If we stay true to the above viewpoints and honestly examine the text...
The 20 Most Ridiculous Things People Say After You Say Jesus Was Black and 60 Ways To Respond

The 20 Most Ridiculous Things People Say After You Say Jesus Was Black and 60 Ways To Respond

The Hit List
If there was ever a topic that breeds hilarious, ridiculous, annoying, and outright unbiblical responses based on nothing more than hate for black people... its the subject of Christ being black. Put the words "black" and "Jesus" in the same sentence and people will lose all common sense. Some people just can't fathom the idea that a man that lived in Africa to hide, came from a lineage that started by mixing with African descendants of Ham, and were often mistaken for Africans... could possibly be black (cognitive dissonance). What it boils down to is that they just flat out hate the idea of a black Messiah... and those that would reject Christ based on race will not see the kingdom of heaven. Feel free to drop a link to this page any time you encounter any of these type of...
Replacement Theology: Did The Church Replace The Nation of Israel?

Replacement Theology: Did The Church Replace The Nation of Israel?

The Awakening
Replacement Theology is one of those theories that require you to take an "eyes wide shut" approach to scripture. In order to believe this blatantly false doctrine, we have to ignore every single verse in the Bible that proves it wrong. At it's core, it is a Satanic and false doctrine that has crept into the Church because people simply refuse to research what they are told is true by their pastor, mentor, or whoever. Replacement Theology is known by several names:
Unmasking The Gentiles: The Role of Europeans In Bible Prophecy

Unmasking The Gentiles: The Role of Europeans In Bible Prophecy

The Gentiles
I first started writing this study over a year ago. Since then it has grown to over 14,000 words, and has led to the revelation of many parts of prophecy being clarified for THOUSANDS of people. While there are those that it has helped tremendously, there are those that have a hard time dealing with the conclusions in this study. Not because of the research, but because some people have a hard time acknowledging where their descendants and ultimately themselves fall into prophecy. I can't do anything but teach the truth, regardless of how anyone feels about it. Please feel free to leave your comments and questions. Who Are The Gentiles In The Bible? Does the term “Gentiles” refer to all non Jews or is that just the lie we’ve been sold to cover up the truth? Who were th
Nimrod: The Grandson of Ham, The First World Leader, and The Builder of Babel

Nimrod: The Grandson of Ham, The First World Leader, and The Builder of Babel

The Hamites
Who Was King Nimrod In The Bible? Nimrod is arguably one of the most important people in the early parts of the Old Testament, but there is very little said about him in scripture overall. However, what is said changes the entire course of human history, mostly because of where he was from. Nimrod was the son of Cush, the grandson of Ham, and the great grandson of Noah. Nimrod: The Son of Cush Being a son of Cush, Nimrod himself would be classified as a Cushite. According to both scripture and history, Cushites were known for their black skin. Kuwsh (Strong’s #3568): Probably of foreign origin; Cush (or Ethiopia), the name of a son of Ham, and of his territory; also of an Israelite — Chush, Cush, Ethiopia. Cushites According To Josephus “For of the four sons
Tidal: King of The Gentiles

Tidal: King of The Gentiles

The Gentiles
Scripture often contains names of people, places, and things that sound completely foreign to our modern English ears. One of these references comes in the early chapters of Genesis in which the kings of nine nations go to war. One of these kings is referred to as "Tidal king of nations". "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations.." - Genesis 14:1 During the course of my research into the Gentiles, I decided to take a peek at the word used for "nations" in Genesis 14:1 and Genesis 14:9. The word used was "gowyim". For a full study on the meaning of gowyim please see the following study: Unmasking The Gentiles: The Identity of The Gowyim Tidal Identified As A Europea...
